that's a difficult question really but if it was me I'd get a Fender tube amp that I could max out, and add a tubescreamer. Or a vintage tube Marshall, still with the tubescreamer infront.

Use a Strat and really fat strings and make sure to have strongs hands wink.gif

Something like <1w for home usage or 15-30 for rehearsing and gigs (small to medium rooms)

Isn't this the coolest? http://www.stevesmusiccenter.com/LittleLanilei3350.html ohmy.gif

If you like the amp, get an attenuator. I recently purchased one myself and are VERY happy with it. I can max out my 100w tubehead and get down to very quiet practice levels. Cause I assume the frontman is a tubeamp, right?

Fender Twin Reverb is a beautiful amp. Bring your wallet though as they aren't cheap!

If you have some bucks to kick around: A fender bassman, twin or deluxe reverb will do (deluxe reverb is the cheapest and also sits nicely at 20 watts, GREAT amp, some people call it the greatest amp of all time). I'm partial to the 65 Twin Custom 15 myself, if I got another amp besides my mesa it would probably be this beast.

Also, a fender supersonic is a great choice, it's in the same price range as the above amps but is also very versatile. When I was trying out between a mesa 5:50 and this supersonic, I was kind of leaning towards the supersonic (GREAT cleans, crunch and even super heavy high gain in a nice package).

If you want to spend less (but still get a tube amp) I'd go for a blues junior or a blues deluxe if you crave a little more dirt and volume (while still having that awesome stevie clean/dirty sound available).

I recently bought a Fender Princeton Recording amp.
It's basically a blackface Fender amp with a build in attenuator and two build-in stomp box effects, a compressor and an overdrive. (this overdrive sound tube screamer like)
It's only 15 watts. You can turn the volume really high, then you get a really nice tube sound, at the same time you can keep sound levels down by turning on the attenuator.
The attenuator has about 15 steps from bypass to completely silent. When the amp is silent you can use a headphone of the recording line out.

I think it's a great amp!.
The only negative thing I can think of is the price... Overhere it was about € 1250, which is quite expensive...

ooooh, okay. Then I'd recommend checking out the Blues deluxe, as someone stated above me.

My vote goes to some Fender combo with 12" with built in attenuator that can go from 5W-50W. This will cover practice and gigs as well.
